  42. My deepest condolences to Tim’s family and friends. They don’t make friends/people with hearts like Tim very often and I was honoured to have know him, shared houses with him for a short time and called him a friend. I wish his beautiful extended family all the best in getting through this difficult time and I will know I will shed a tear every time Hawthorn plays Geelong and not just because the Cats are probably towelling us up again but because I will know there will be no text message from Tim pointing out that they towelled us up!
    Tim you will be missed! Travel safely mate!
